Application Area:

Quality control for manual cell counts on hemocytometer

Control is easy to use. I haven't heard from my sales rep, but I did with our previous sed rate analyzer. I rated 3 stars for the value because the package size is too large for our use. It usually expires before we use up the 6 bottles.

Great product. We needed to start running a hemocytometer/cytocentrifuge control for manual cell counts and differentials. This is now required by our accrediting agency. We are pleased with the ease of use and assayed values that ensure our technical staff is performing testing accurately.
